Hi All!

Belt Drives for Amadeal AMA16VF / Weiss WMD16 and others
Available Direct (http://www.hmsnz.co.nz/productdetails.asp?catID=6110807) or via Ebay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/141584279799)

This belt drive is designed to be simple & compact, while retaining the quill drive function. These machines are well known for the problematic gear boxes & motors. The BF16 style machine is well suited to small, high RPM cutting. This belt drive will make your machine quieter.

This kit has parts in common with the Brushless motor version we sell - so you can upgrade to that motor at a later stage, but you will need a new pulley & motor plate (available separately).

The pulleys are sized to give a 0.7 reduction on the standard motor - giving increased torque and limiting the max speed to about 4000rpm (based on 5600rpm stock motor speed).

New Quill & Spindle bearings are recommended for lower friction running:
Quill Drive: Replace with Nachi Shielded 6007ZZE & 6209ZZE.
MT2 Spindle: Replace with 2x 7005 angular contact bearings (requires bearing spacer)

The belt drive should be compatible with the following machines:

Amadeal AMA16VF
Warco WM-14
SPG 2217-16 LV
Weiss WMD16

May also fit Optimum BF16 - check diagram below.

Price is $165 + $35 NZD shipping. Currently works out to about ~100 total. Can be shipped internationally. Email: mark(at)hmsnz.co.nz for more info.
